Another fantastic year in the books for the Riverview Sunfest 3 on 3 basketball tournament organized by the Riverview High school basketball Booster club.
The Sun was out and shining for the 4th annual 3 on 3 tournament held on the grounds of Riverview Middle School and Patricia Park. We had 27 teams entered this year in 6 divisions .
Games got off to a fantastic start just after 9am with some great competition going on each of the 10 courts. Organizers were very pleased to see all in attendance with big smiles on their faces throughout the day! After a quick lunch time break the teams were back at it again for the afternoon games and we'd continue to see some tremendous basketball as teams battled it out in playoff games.
All games would finish up just prior to 4pm and division winners were awarded their championship t-shirts. Even though we declare winners the overall theme for the day is for teams to have FUN and help support the RHS basketball programs. We seen some real sportsmanship with high 5's smiles and big cheers from parents and teammates throughout the day.
This year's event saw the largest number of local teams entered at the same time seeing a great representation from teams from Moncton as well as from Fredericton and Sackville!
Congrats to all the winning teams of the day and thanks to all the athletes who helped support our Riverview Royals Basketball teams by entering their teams in this FUN-raiser event.
Thanks to the Riverview Fire Department's Combat Challenge team who ran the BBQ for the 4th year in a row and again donated all the proceeds raised from the sales of the burgers and dogs back into our programs. You guys and gals are truly great supporters of our programs!
A special recognition to Allison Scott (our Event Chairperson) for leading the organizing committee, Jason Bowie (The guy with the big camera) going around snapping all those great photos and to all the other volunteers from timekeepers, net minders and the lunchtime event organizers to the medical and support volunteers who helped pull this day altogether, without these people this event would not and could not happen.
